It’s no big secret that a hammock is one of the best ways to lay back, relax, and enjoy your surroundings. Hanging out in a hammock can release stress you accumulate from work, personal life duties and just all the little stresses that add up in a big way. There’s no wrong place to bring your hammock, really. However, this blog is written specifically for those who are planning a trip to an island. If you fall into this category, you definitely want to keep reading…

There’s a few things to keep in mind when traveling to an island. You’ll want to remember to bring a swimsuit, sunscreen, lose fitting clothing, and….without a doubt, a HAMMOCK! Just incase you thought a hammock wasn’t a necessity for island travel, you were way off. Hammocks are one of the first things that come to mind whenever you imagine what a tropical island getaway might look like. Palm trees, ocean, sand, and of course, a hammock!

An important thing to keep in mind when traveling with your hammock is making sure you have all the proper equipment for set up and bags to carry them in. Fortunately, these hammocks are made compact and easy to carry for any and all travel. You can carry it in a back pack, or throw it in your luggage. It was made to be light weight and easy to carry and store during those long trips and hikes. Plus, why should you wait in line for a hammock at the resort your staying at when you can easily bring your own and set up wherever you please at any time of the day – with no wait!

Call us crazy, but setting up a hammock right in the water or between two trees anywhere you see sounds like a great plan to us. You may even find a spot with a great view in a peaceful and quiet spot – away from the pool and crowded beach. If that doesn’t sound like a perfect set up for your next island vacation, we don’t know what could possibly beat it!
